Nigerians React As Leah Sharibu Marks Second Birthday In Boko Haram Captivity

More than a year after Leah Sharibu was abducted along with over 100 of her mates from the Government Girls Secondary School in Dapchi, Adamawa State, hopes are still alive that she will someday be reunited with her family.

While the other schoolgirls had regained their freedom from the insurgents, Leah, a Christian, was the only one who was not released for refusing to denounce her faith.

Today marked her second birthday in captivity since her abduction on February 19, 2018 and a group of concerned Nigerians staged a march in her honour.

Some took to the social media to wish her Happy Birthday, while expressing sympathy over her plight.

Some others also expressed their frustration over her prolonged detention and urged the government to make more efforts to secure her release.
